Making the most of "life's little lessons" will be the key message shared with those attending the 26th Annual Fun and Wellness Day in Emmetsburg this month.
Those lessons come from professional speaker Stacy (Besch) Williams, who is known throughout the Midwest. She also has local connections.
Williams has been an instructor at community colleges across the state of Iowa and has been the owner of a salon and day spa in Algona for more than 17 years.
Her keynote message is entitled "Control, Alt, Delete."
"Her speech ranges from humorous to serious and everything in between," said Kathy Merrill, one of the organizers of the event. "Her stories will entertain you. Life is full of lessons and we expect our audience will relate to that message."
